Wedding & Portrait Photography in Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Argyll and across Scotland

Wedding Photography for Large & Small Weddings

Wedding Photography for large and small wedding in Glasgow, Argyll and Loch Lomond

My name is Ian Arthur and I am a Helensburgh based wedding photographer. I photograph weddings both large and small at Loch Lomond, Glasgow, Argyll and across Scotland, telling wedding stories through my picture taking.

Soon its going to be your wedding day, and one of the happiest days of your life. Your pictures are important and as lasting reminders of this special day you need a photographer who can capture your wedding day – creatively and professionally – so one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make while planning your wedding is choosing a photographer. So who do you choose? Well, it’s not going to be an easy task because there are so many wedding photographers to choose from, but ideally you’ll be looking for a photographer you can trust – someone who can capture your day with some great photography, and with experience.

Over the years I’ve been privelidged to photograph hundreds of weddings, from the grandest to the most intimate of days, so I have more than enough experience for any wedding, however big or small. With so much going on during your wedding its going to be hard to remember everything, so its my job to document your wedding with timeless pictures so you can re-live the day time and time again. This is why you need a creative and experienced photographer to create those lasting memories.

Your wedding is the start of a new journey and I would like to share a small part of this journey in the best way I can – through my photography. So if you’re planning a wedding and want to know more, then visit my picture galleries and see for yourself how my photography could fit into your special day.


Portrait Photography for All Occasions


I am also a portrait photographer for all occasions. Based in the coastal town of Helensburgh, I create portraits at Loch Lomond or in Glasgow. I don’t photograph portraits in a studio, instead I prefer to work outdoors because there are many parts of Loch Lomond and Glasgow that are both beautiful and interesting, which make great locations for photography. I also prefer to use natural light for my portraits as I believe this offers the best opportunity to capture the mood of the occasion.

Most of my portraits are captured using digital cameras, which allows quality, accuracy and vibrant colour. But if you would like me to use monochrome film for your portraits, then I am more than happy to use this timeless method of capture for your portrait photography. Whether its for singles, couples, families, engagements, birthdays, celebrations, your pet or equine, then I am more than happy to capture this moment in time and make your occasion special.

Some of the nice things people have said about my work...

Laura and Alan – Glasgow

All our family and friends commented on how friendly and professional you were and also how relaxed you made everyone feel during the whole wedding day. Thank you for making our day so memorable and giving us such amazing photographs.  Thank you so much…!

- Laura and Alan – Glasgow

On the day you were unobtrusive but captured the whole story of the day. All our guests commented on your friendly energetic approach but said they didn’t feel bored by long sessions as they have at other weddings. Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding day memories.

- Kirsten and Colin – London
Gillian and John – Cardiff

The images you captured on the day are simply stunning and the friendly way you dealt with everyone was great. You were unbelievably patient as we revised and revised again the proof of the wedding album so we could get it just as we wanted it – and the Storybook is perfect.
